Holiday in the Hills is Sutter Street Theatre’s love letter to the Holiday Season. According to the theatre playbill, the story takes place in the late 1800’s right in Sutter Street Theatre where the residents of the town and surrounding areas have gotten together for a party to celebrate the season. 

This isn’t just your average holiday play with a script known by many, this unique play has a focus on Folsom itself.

“A lot of research went into the actual people and places that were here in the late 1800’s, and everyone you see onstage was an actual resident or visitor to Folsom at that time of year,” notes Sutter Street Theatre’s Allen Schmeltz. “Seeing a performance of Holiday in the Hills will put you and your family in the holiday spirit or we’ll give your money back, guaranteed.”

Holiday in the Hills opens this Saturday, December 2 and will run through December 23. There will be weekly performances on Friday’s and Saturday’s at 7:30 p.m. as well as Sundays at 4:30 p.m. Due to the play’s popularity they are also hosting additional performances on December 14, 20 and 21 at 7:30 p.m.
